A Choir of Angels for Christmas

Way back last year I posted a photo of some secret stitching I was working on for my "Crafty Christmas" series... but when the series got cut short due to my sudden move, the project ended up sitting in a box for months rather unloved. Finally (only a year late!) you can see what I was working on...


... an angel embroidery pattern! I was so happy with how this turned out when I first stitched it last year, it's great to be able to share it with you guys at long last.

I'll be sharing the free pattern on my blog later this week, along with a whole bunch of other crafty projects based on the same angel design. This is one good thing about putting a project in a box and coming back to it a year later - looking at it fresh helps spark a whole bunch of new ideas!

As well as the embroidery pattern, I'll be sharing "how tos" for sewing two styles of felt angel ornaments to hang on your Christmas tree ...
 

... instructions for making pretty angel Christmas cards...

 

... plus some ideas for other festive paper crafting projects you could use the angel motif for.

The first free project will be posted tomorrow!

I'm working on a PDF version of the felt ornament tutorials which will be available soon - like the other PDF tutorials in my shop, this will be an easily printable version of the projects shared on my blog which you can then use to make ornaments for sale at craft fairs etc, or to teach sewing classes. I will of course let you guys know when it's finished & in my shops.

I might make a PDF version of the embroidery pattern, too - if anyone's interested in that? (maybe included in the felt ornament PDF?) Please let me know :)
